Wait Times for Naturalization Applications Have Doubled

Nearly nine million immigrants are eligible for U.S. Citizenship. However, the Administration continues to tighten its scrutiny of applications, making the wait times for naturalization increase at an alarming rate.

Congress has voiced concerns with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) about application processing delays and backlogs. They have cited USCIS’s shift from a customer service-oriented immigration benefits agency to an agency prioritizing enforcement. Congress now wants answers about how USCIS plans to reduce and eliminate these backlogs.

As the Trump Administration continues to build barriers to naturalization, the journey to citizenship is likely to become more difficult. With increased scrutiny, long wait times, and the government’s shift toward immigration enforcement, it is even more important for U.S. Citizenship applications to be prepared quickly and properly.
